Life Drawing Session 09 - Dude was Nuts!
In terms of poses, this was possibly the session I enjoyed the most since I started Life Drawing back up a few months ago (apart from maybe Session 06). It also happened to be the first male model I've drawn since restarting!
Very lean guy - his bones and muscles were really visible - and after the fairly standard long poses (bizarrely at this new place I haven't been before, they work from long - 45min - down to short - 5min - poses), his short poses were full of energy and twisting and writhing'ness'....
So bones + muscles + writhing = WIN.
Minutes: 25, then 5s
HOWEVER! Dude was indeed, all kinds of nuts. Making all sorts of noises (at one point he just screamed), saying uncomfortable things to the class, falling asleep.... I tried my hardest not to catch his gaze as I was drawing his face but I swear he kept looking at me.. smiling..... errrr.... 'shudders'
And to top it off, he did a pose which I'm sooo sorry I wasn't able to capture adequately enough for you dear people....but I shall attempt to describe it best I can.
Whilst using the prop of the walking stick slung over his shoulder, and taking a power stance wider than Van Halen could ever muster... he grabbed his 'meat and two veg' with his free hand like he was trying to detach them from his body.
Now, in a Life Drawing class, you kind of get in the habit of drawing whatever's in front of you... and as such, I just drew away.... but then I thought, "Hold up. I'm drawing a dude waving his nuts in my face....." :S
Dude was indeed, all kinds of nuts.
'Till the Next!
On a side note, in these last two sessions I've kinda reverted back to 'old ways', after having started to become a bit more experimental.... So next time, I'll definitely try to get back on the right track.
